the euro crisis. what about the atmosphere today, john? >> the atmosphere today was more than cordial. of course they have political differences. the euro debt crisis, speaking about conditionality and soldarity. but basically they have a common goal. it is what ignites them. a common view of europe. the raging debate right now is absolutely unthinkable and meets with blank astonishment here in berlin as it does in france. >> looking forward to the official ceremony tomorrow, the same enthusiasm we had 50 years ago? >> well, the signing of the treaty, friendship treaty was a milestone in european history. as you mentioned these countries regarded each other as archenemies, it was the beginning of a long process. perhaps more important than the consultations that it demands between the members and heads of government of france and germany and their foreign and defense ministers is the cultural exchange between the two countries, literally millions of german and french schoolchildren have taken part in exchange programs in the last 50 years, learned each other's languages and formed som

with the results of that abuse. john train's police officers to respond to school shootings. the state is gearing up for the fight. officers need to act swiftly and decisively. >> i got one down, one male -- white male. but a victim, a gunshot wound, extremities. tourniquet has been applied. >> it is a difficult situation, but even these officers respect the right. >> i respect the law and people's ability to protect themselves. there needs to be regulation as to who has it and how easy it is to get, but a total ban -- i do not think that is realistic, and i do not think that is a remedy to any of the problems we have seen. >> it is the moment truth -- could he takes aim and fired more than 20 rounds. the homemade rifle seems ok at first glance. all the bullets in their target. as far as he is concerned, his idea works. the receiver has not last long, but that is not putting cody off -- the receiver has not lasted long. >> rights are not about if it is socially better. are more people say or are less people say? i'm going to say that if you could prove to me that it was more dangerous socially th
